Spotlight on Success
This 2-year-old is a limited, primarily non-verbal communicator who typically expresses herself with gestures, body language and facial expressions. She has been working toward expressing her wants and needs using an Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) system. She has been using the GoTalk NOW application on an iPad, which is available through the Oklahoma ABLE Tech loan library, to improve her communication abilities with caregivers.
She can use the assistive technology to make requests, give commands, and indicate choices while engaging in age-appropriate activities such as playing ball, blowing bubbles, and reading books.
Oklahoma ABLE Tech and SoonerStart are happy to collaborate to ensure infants and toddlers get the assistive technology services they need!
